Great pants -- have kept me dry and happy resort skiing as well as snowshoeing and skiing in the bc. No real complaints at all about function, especially for ProShell at this price.

I wish I liked the fit as much as I liked everything else about them though. These pants are very fitted (by shell standards) in the legs. But then the waist/bib area is gigantic. I am 5'10", 175ish lbs. The medium was practically skin tight on my legs. The large fits pretty well in the legs (still too slim for anything but a base layer) but has an incredible amount of spare room in the waist and bib -- even with my top base and mid layers tucked inside the bib.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Once I actually got this glove in the correct size, it was a joy. Warm, comfortable and dexterous. No complaints at all (so far). Seem pretty tough too, so we'll see how they stand up to full seasons.

The only complaint is the sizing -- according to the size chart I should have been a size medium, and on the smaller side of medium at that. However the medium was so tight not only could I barely move my fingers but I could actually feel the glove restricting the blood flow across my hand. I measured and remeasured my hand to make sure I was not a total idiot, too dumb to use a tape measure and look at a simple chart. This glove just runs incredibly small compared to the size chart provided, so be forewarned.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great shell. I have never once felt clammy in it or missed pit zips. And I have never felt any water get in from the outside. I have used it throughout all four seasons doing everything from skiing to paddling and been very happy with it in all situations.

My only complaint is that the arms and armholes are extremely narrow compared to the rest of the jacket. This makes the fit somewhat awkward and layering options are limited as a result -- I am unable to use this shell for extreme cold days as I would lose the full range of movement in my arms. However if I sized up to allow more layering, I would be swimming in fabric in the body. So although I highly recommend this jacket, this is something to consider.

Related to ed's question, (and hoping for some input from knanier), I am looking for a good multi-purpose soft shell pant for resort and bc skiing, snowshoe, etc. I want something that will work as an outer layer on dryer or warmer days and something that will also work comfortably layered under my hard shell or bib for days of extreme cold.

Phil,
Thanks so much for your answer (on both pages no less!). I'll definitely be getting the Rab jacket. Wondering if you had any suggestion about pants -- the Latok Alpine pants don't have full zips or pockets and from the reviews the fit would not be great for me anyways (big legs). The Latok pants are too heavy for multi-season use...

I'm looking to replace my old hardshells (old LL Bean garbage bags) with something a lot more comfortable and versatile. Ideally I'd like to get something suitable for four season use in New England. Obviously there is no true "4-season" solution but I'd like something I could use for spring-summer-fall and some winter (ie day trips and overnights, nothing too brutal). I've basically narrowed it down to the OR Foray and the Rab Latok Alpine. Would appreciate some input...
